Tears of sadness, turned to tears of happiness. Laughter behind our backs, turned to laughing with each other and enjoying life. Pains and
aches from overtaxed bodies turned to healthy bodies able to exercise and run and play. The emotional rollercoaster from living the morbidly obese life. You know the life, or lack of, where you’re either invisible or looked upon with disgust merely due to your size. It ALL changes after this surgery and it has all been for the better for the two of us.
Dan & I both had laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, same day in 2003, and lost a combined 300 lbs. After that surgery, our life began changing drastically, for the better, from the very first day. We did however discover there is a huge void when it comes to support and/or information. What most need is a little straight shooting and a lot of understanding and caring and just knowing others share in their journey.
That’s what we’re here for. Sharing, caring, supporting and even fussing at times when we see people pushing the envelope too much. We can’t
help ourselves but feel compelled to talk with anyone and everyone that will listen regarding the miraculous changes in our lives due to having a great surgeon and a great procedure available to us.
